People are really not digging Starbucks this holiday season.
The post quickly racked up millions of views, and social media users were quick to comment on the violent allegation.
Some declared the cookies a “war on Christmas.”

While others seemed to be poking fun at the ridiculous controversy.

A lot of people were talking about it.

But according to Starbucks, the cookies were discontinued in 2010…
Ok so Starbucks gets rid of their Christmas cups then they slit polar bear throats on their cookies? pic.twitter.com/L9EhaLq1lc — Davin Lee (@davinreader) December 11, 2015
Which begs the question, why even bring it up?

Maybe this isn't a war on Christmas, but a war on Starbucks.
